April Book Review of the Junaluskans
|710 N. Lakeshore Drive, Waynesville|
|Apr 19, 2017|
The Book Review Committee of the Junaluskans is pleased to have local resident Sara Jenkins as its presenter for its April gathering. Sara will review Small is Beautiful: Economics As If People Mattered by E. F. Schumacher, a classic work that was included in the 1995 Times Literary Supplement list of the 100 most influential books published since WWII.
With the multifaceted challenges of the 21st century, although almost half a century old, this book is more relevant than ever, and Sara will focus on the moral dimension of Schumacher's work--how "people matter," how character is formed by meaningful work, and how small scale community is most conducive to human well-being.
Sara Jenkins, a freelance nonfiction editor, is known by many in the area for her authoring of two books on contemporary Buddhist practice in the West. Currently she works with the Lift Every Voice project of Pigeon Center collecting the African-American history of Haywood County and is also involved with a regional program of WCU's Mountain Heritage Center.
Don't miss Sara's book review on Wednesday, April 19th, at 10:00 AM in the Susan Todd Lounge of the Harrell Center, 710 N. Lakeshore at Lake Junaluska.
